Coconut oil is an edible vegetable oil that comes directly from coconut palm tree fruit (Cocos nucifera). While coconut oils are used for cooking and offer many health benefits, they also offer many benefits to the skin and hair. The oil has been used for centuries as a natural skin and hair care remedy.
The indigenous people of the tropical islands where coconuts grow have long recognized the unique properties of this versatile oil. Coconut oil is especially beneficial for the skin because it is rich in lauric acid, which has both anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Making your own soap can seem daunting, but it's really not that difficult! And with a lye calculator, it's even easier. Lye soap calculators take the guesswork out of soap-making by telling you exactly how much lye or sodium hydroxide and olive oil to use in your recipe.
There are many lye calculators available online, but my favorite is SoapCalc. SoapCalc is free to use and provides information about your soap recipe. It will tell you the saponification value (SAP value) of your oils, as well as the lye concentration and water discount.
